WINEMAKER NOTES
An intersection of ideologies inspired the name, Croix, the ancient French term meaning, "cross," and represents the convergence of winegrowing ideals old and new.

The wine is based on the ancient notion of terrior, that wine is inherently influenced by the environment in which the grapes are grown, and build upon this foundation with the belief that to produce remarkable wine is to embrace the convergence of all situational dependencies.

Alcohol: 14.7%
94 POINTS - "From a mélange of vineyards, including Manzana, Calesa and Thomas Road, this red is earthy in black tea and baking spice, with focused acidity and a stemmy freshness that presents as both wild and incredibly appealing. Crisp rhubarb, red cherry and pomegranate are bold, burly and richly layered." - Wine Enthusiast

92 POINTS - "Medium ruby in the glass, the 2017 Pinot Noir Narrow Gauge has a very spicy nose of cinnamon, peppercorn, dried leaves and potpourri with warm black cherries and berries and crushed red cherries. Medium-bodied and silky with loads of spices in the mouth, it has soft, grainy tannins and juicy acidity with a long, layered finish." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

91 POINTS - "Moving to the Pinot Noirs, the 2017 Pinot Noir Narrow Gauge comes from the Russian River Valley and spent 15 months in 40% new oak. This medium ruby colored effort offers a great nose of black raspberries, mulled cherries, pine forest floor, and dried earth. It's juicy, medium-bodied, has plenty of fruit, good acidity, and a great finish." - Jeb Dunnuck
Low yields from the vineyards produce an enological pallet that enhance subtle nuances that enlighten a wines character. The use of state-of-the-art sorting systems and gravity movements from tank to barrel are essential for preserving fruit integrity. Experimental and established fermentation practices are used to flesh out concentrated varietal character. A slow, deliberate aging process in both the barrel and the bottle, aging and tasting our wines over a period of months, releasing each wine only when perfection is mastered.
